We are just going to layer this in a casserole dish. This dish is so packed with cheese, green chilis and chicken you will be full and satisfied for hours.

When we serve this delicious dish at home, I pair it up with some refried beans, black beans or mexican rice. The flavors are all perfect together.

This is one of those meals that if you had chicken earlier in the week, you can shred the pieces that are left and use them.If needed, stop at the local store on the way home and grab a rotisserie chicken. That will make the preparation even shorter.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Can I use a different meat?

You could use turkey in this dish. If you want to use ground beef, steak or sausage, you will need to change up the recipe to work as a beef dish.

            Can I use flour tortillas?

You can, however, the true flavor of a real enchilada comes in with a corn tortilla.

            How do I store this dish?

These chicken enchiladas can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. If you want to freeze what is left, place into single serve freezer safe containers with lids that close tightly.

            Can I make these ahead of time?

You can do all the preparation, you can assemble the casserole, but do not bake it until shortly before eating.
